gathering around the city of benghazi in libya, they were worried if an american face was on that operation, if it was too much seen as america leading another war in the middle east, that they might not pass that resolution in the united nations security council. and so the idea was they needed to put some of the arab and other countries out in front and that the obama administration needed to lead from behind in passing that united nations resolution. so that was the context. i always thought, frankly, it was simply a matter of strategy, the phrase to me was always a little bit more machiavellian rather than announcing that they weren't going to take a leadership role in the world. of course, politically it's not something you would necessarily brand your foreign policy with. and republicans have really seized on it almost immediately and every republican has used it to slam obama ever since. but i hasten to add the specific context is very different than what most republicans describe. >> the article was an excellent article. i remember it well. you and i were on that same trip to north

officials in that country are pretty confident that this drone took off south of siden, the coastal city in lebanon, then flew south over the mediterranean, took a left turn, came in over the gaza strip before heading in over the southern israeli desert where it was brought down. secondly, they point out that hezbollah has a history with drones. they launched one during the war between hezbollah and israel back in 2006. that one flew successfully. there was a less successful launch a couple of years before that. as for a reason, israeli military officials believe that the hezbollah may have been flying this drone on behalf of their allies, iran, trying to get reconnaissance information on a nuclear facility in southern israel. >> shep: and iran weighing in. >> a member of the revolutionary guard saying ha what it shows is that israel's air defenses don't work. in particular the so-called iron dome system. israeli officials point out that's a missile defense system. not a low flying plane defense system. they'll point to that video they released showing how they destroyed the drone when t
